From the Rochester Police Department:

Two Clawson teens ticketed for open alcohol while driving

On Wednesday, May 29, the Rochester Police Department stopped an 18-year-old Clawson resident for speeding on University Ave near Great Oaks Country Club and Apartments. As the officer, who made the traffic stop, approached the vehicle, he noticed the backseat passenger, a 19-year-old also from Clawson, was putting something near his feet. It was later found to be open alcohol so both the driver and passenger were given minor in possession (MIP) citations and sent home.

A warrant for a Rochester Hills woman’s arrest

On Monday, May 27, Rochester Police investigated a call to Mr. B’s downtown regarding an operating-while-intoxicated-hit-and-run warrant for a woman’s arrest.  Officers were given a description and searched the restaurant but later found the 28-year-old Rochester Hills woman nearby. She was arrested and taken to the station where she posted bond on the warrant and was released without further trouble.

Smashed car window leaves driver with $400 in repairs

On Thursday, May 23, officers met with a 23-year-old Rochester Hills resident who had parked his car in the public lot at Walnut Street and Third Street.
